circus whisper



i am whispering to you
can you see the cracks
beneath the white pan paint?
the trapeze artist
has fallen from grace
her corset laced so tight
blue  lashes flutter from the pain
i picked you out
you looked like you could tell
realities from the fake
the top flight from the grubby canvas shroud
don't be taken in
the wings are clipped
a heart beneath the feathers beats
to our tune
now you see the truth
come and join us
for the time of your life. 

This is the latest picture from Tess at Magpie Tales head over to see the other writers take on the  Marc Chagall painting, Circus with the yellow clown.
